Atheists and agnostics, Jews and Mormons are among the highest-scoring groups in a 32-question survey of religious knowledge by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life. On average, Americans got 16 of the 32 questions correct. Atheists and agnostics got an average of 20.9 correct answers. Jews (20.5) and Mormons (20.3). Protestants got 16 correct answers on average, while Catholics got 14.7 questions right.

How will you do on the quiz?

Got 24, I most closely identify with Judaism I guess.  (No Jew)

None.  I could never trade my rationality and reason for stupidity and ignorance.

26 out of 32.

Not too bad considering I'm not religious. Most of it is just stuff you learn at school.

Err ... before I even take this "test," how is someone "smarter than an atheist" if he/she knows much about religion?  That's a stupid metric.  I don't know much about Jewish or Catholic pomp and circumstance, and I know for a fact I'm smarter than some atheists, Jews, Christians, Buddhists and Muslims.  According to this test, however, that someone knows Jews celebrate X on Y day means they're "smarter" than me.  

Again, stupid.  Someone knows a handful of things I do not; then, ipso presto, they're smarter?  LOL.  Look up the "hasty generalization" fallacy.

Besides, the ability to retain factoids isn't a proper measure of intellect.  That's more the stuff of the ability to learn and adapt than anything else.

Of course I do.  I read voraciously.  I am shocked that people would score low on this no matter what their religious beliefs may be.  Most of this stuff can be picked up by just being alive.

Because we've conquered everything else.

I missed 10 I probably need to create my own religion. Religions typically teach the same things just with different gods and characters so if you just do the right thing you are good to go. There wasnt a question about the preacher Jim Jones who talked several hundred people to kill themselves with Cyanide.

Nope and neither has the overwhelming majority of people who profess to be religious.  Its a waste of time anyways as its very poorly written and the characters are all one-dimensional.  Greek Mythology does not fall in that category however and the Greek Myths are actually enjoyable and the character development is quite complex.

30/32.. I've been to Catholic School for 16 years of my life lol. However, I would not call myself very religious or some devote Christian. These were pretty easy.. I missed one of the jewish questions and the religious population of Indonesia.
